of rush limbaugh whose website compares the reform supporters to nazis. a conservative group that's backing the protest insists the anti-reform movement is there. how do you respobd to the charge that this is all orchestrated and artificial if it's coming from talk show hosts and websites? >> reporter: if that were the case, you wouldn't see the massive turnout. the average person is at work when rush limbaugh is on the radio. >> reporter: out of nowhere, a bystander listening in came up to us to say ditto. >> thank you very much. >> you happen to agree with this gentleman? >> i do. >> reporter: democrats are flexing their grassroots. the former obama volunteers are back in campaign mode. >> we have folks who are anxious about change who love to play the fear card. >> reporter: it's about facts not fear. but time and again, he falsely compared democratic health care proposals to a canadian style universal system. >> the ones coming out the house are not canadian style. you know that? >> universal health care in any way, shape, or form is a bad notion. >> reporter: as for senator j
say she's pro abortion and i remember rush limbaugh even back in june said her record on abortion is not clear. what is your objection to her nomination? >> she's been evasive on a number of questions. i met with her privately. i asked her some fairly simple questions about the constitution, the bill of rights. she seems more founded in precedent than in upholding the constitution. and a number of us are very concerned about an activist court that's trying to expand what the constitution intends for the federal government to do. >> do you think that her record has been a record of an activist? >> we have some problems with a number of her decisions, particularly on bill of rights questions such as the second amendment. the decision that she made about the firemen was questionable. a lot of her speeches suggest that she has a different idea of what a justice should do. but she had some confirmation conversions, and she came back to the point of view of a constructionist type of judge. but she has not been consistent in her comments and seems very evasive wit
as it would give ammunition to the people he describes as far right-wing whether it is rush limbaugh, sean hannity and the like and people he apparently feels have antipathy toward the black community and don't have a sincere passion to try to help uplift and so he says we don't need to have those people to give them ammunition. bill cosby said it's not a matter of earing dirty laundry. it isn't as if there are people who don't know about the problems, about the high dropout rate and don't know about the achievement gap between black and white children, who don't know about feet high incarceration rates and celebration of the drug culture. and i think it is just so difficult to have that conversation, steve. it's painful to hear it and then there are those as the caller points out will legitimately use that to distort that in some cases by use it to say we don't need social intervention to help those left behind and often left behind because of historical injustice in the society. so then it leads people i think into positions that are highly polarized and i am not going to admit to falls

megaphones out there you have rush limbaugh saying these crazy things like the obama health care symbol looks like a nazi symbol and encouraging further elements of the fringe from believing and stoking crazy rumors. that's a hard thing for any white house to counteract. they've been aggressive about. they are putting out web videos and they have an interactive process in which they ask supporters to let them know about crazy talk that's out there so that they can rebut it. that's not easy. we have a culture as you know 24/7 news through social networks, through cable, through the internet and it's hard for political leaders to try to counter and stay ahead of that. >> there's no control. john harwood, always good to see you, my friend. thank you so much. >>> sarah palin is calling the health care plan evil. she posted her thoughts on her facebook page on friday. she says the america i know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with down syndrome will stand in front of the death panel so bureaucrats can decide based on a subjective judgment of their level of productivity in socie
's comparing health care reform to a panel of death? rush limbaugh compared it to naziism. is sarah jumping on rush's bandwagon? more lawmakers jumping on the bandwagon. the president asked for the money for four jets. congress double down, decided to allow enough money for eight. recession? deficit anyone? and here's a shocking plane story, a continental flight packed with passenger forced to divert because of rotten weather as if that's not enough of a headache, the people were trapped on the plane overnight at the airport. not allowed off. we're going to talk to one of those passengers. good morning, everyone. i'm contessa brewer. the big story we're watching, divers are in the hudson river trying to recover the bodies of two victims still mising from saturday as mid air collision. nine people in all were killed when a private plane and a sight seeing helicopter collided over the hudson. the bodies of seven people have been pulled from the river. earlier new york city mayor michael bloomberg addressed concerns that crowded airspace should have more restrictions. >> sadly, you know, somet
pressed by the likes of rush limbaugh and cnn's lou dobbs. and that controversy led dobbs to take a very personal swipe at msnbc's rachel maddow. so is some of the cable commentary getting out of line? should there be a line you can't cross without getting fired? and why are we still discussing this skip gates arrest? joining me now, amanda moore, and michelle cottle, senior editor of the new republic. is calling the president a racist simply out of bounds? >> yes. >> and yet, there doesn't seem to be any great uproar about it. >> i don't know. that's the part that surprises me a little. but there's a lot -- i guess it would be funny if it weren't so, and here's a word we've heard a lot of lately, stupid. here is a man who has a white mother. here's a man who was raised by two white grandparents, who obviously adored him and who he adores. here's a man at so-called white culture than glenn beck is, and yet we have to hear this kind of commentary. it's quite remarkable. the only thing i would say about this, there's a long history of people towards african-americans. i was reminded in 185
and laura ling into a diplomatic disaster. and limbaugh asks if president clinton hit on them. >> we saw standing before us president bill clinton. >> blackwater continues. more charges against eric prince running a jihad against muslims involved as witnesses against his company and tonight while supposedly protecting americans in iraq illegally dealing arms there. gitmo after threatening, torturing and imprisoning without charge or evidence could the bush administration possibly have sunk lower? yes, they bought fake testimony from witnesses with cash and shoes. the bubble headed bleach blond comes on at 6:00. >> in my home state of minnesota so far only two of these deals have actually been approved by the government. >> close, ms. news actress. 2%. not two. 2%. that would be different. and speaking of minnesota, the
beginning when rush limbaugh says, well, we don't want him to succeed, we don't want president obama to succeed. i want him to fail. well, rush limbaugh has an extraordinary audience, and many of them feel very strongly and are influenced by him. they have senator de mint saying well, we got his waterloo on this health care, we can defeat him. well, there are people out there that want to defeat, don't want to see the president succeed. we shall be encouraged that here is a president that's willing to tackle the most difficult issue we are facing and we should give him a chance to do that. but i think the tone has been set there. so you find people who will come in and hijack these meetings for the purpose of expressing that. >> speaking of that, twl their was a heated exchange that happened at a meeting you were speaking at. it wasn't even a meeting on health care. let's just play a little bit of what went down there. >> all right. >> don't come and take advantage of what these individuals have done! you want a meeting with me on health care? i'll give it to you. >> that was after a
